South Byfield, Mass., November 24. 1926
On the evening of November 18,
Dr. Ingham gave those who played
against Sanborn a dinner at the golf
club. The dinner was informal; so
that speeches were only in order by
Dr. Ingham, Captain Sawyer and
Coach Smith. Dr. Ingham congrat-
ulated Mr. Smith on his success with
the team which started off slowly and
rose steadily, so that every game was
an improvement on the one before,
and finished the season in a blaze of
glory. He also mentioned the fact
that the season was a greater success
because the talent which naturally
came to school was developed and edu-
cated the more because of the exper-
iences in football.
Captain Sawyer was called upon ar-
ter a regular cheer and thanked Dr.
Ingham in behalf of the team for the
dinner. After thanking the team fo
their coordination and wishing them
the best of luck for next year, he gave
way to Coach Smith.
Mr. Smith told of the pleasures in
coaching, and told the teaim that he
was most pleased to return a little of
what he took from the school for it |
was here that he first le" ~ned football.
With this the party brc j up after a
most satisfactory pleasant meal.
DANCE TOPS FOOTBALL SEASON
The Football Dance held in the Lang
Gym on November 20 turned out to be
a great success, and "a good time was
enjoyed by all." The committeemen,
Bill Hart and Jack Calderwood, out-
did themselves in preparing for the oc-
casion, and the gym was tastefully dec.
orated with banners and pennants.
Chase, the caterer, furnished ample
and choice refreshments to serve at
intermission. The orchestra was one
of the features of the evening. It is a
new group, and this was their first job.
They are called "The University Five"
and are made up of the "Crimson Ram-
blers" and the "Gold Coast Orches-
tra" thus gathering a select group of
melody-makers. About fifty couples
including alumni and parents attended.
The patronesses were Mrs. Ingham,
Mrs. Farrell, Mrs. Morse, and Mrs.
Kimball. The committee wish to thank
all those who helped to make the dance

DUMMER WINS FINALE
The Dummer football team closed
its season in a most satisfactory man-
ner by winning the objective tilt of the
year from Sanborn Seminary, 1 9 to 14,
en November I 7. The teams were
about equal in regard to past per-
formances and size, with Dummer hav-
ing the edge in both, and they were
picked to win. The Dummer team
playing on the home field functioned
as it never did before especially in the
second half. The whole team shone
and there were many outstanding play-
ers. Hart for his passing, kicking, and
field generalship and Wally Temple for
his broken field runs stood out. Swal-
low was the Sanborn luminary. The
game was clean and hard-fought
throughout with the lead changing fre-
Dummer kicked off to Sanborn and
held, forcing them to punt. On the
second down Sawyer broke loose from
his own forty yard line and ran thirty,
five yards before the safety man nailed
him. Dummer could not gain al-
though they received the benefit of an
offside penalty, and Hart standing on
the twenty-seven yard line placed a
drop-kick squarely between the up-
rights for the first blood of the game.
Dummer kicked off again and Sanborn
made a first down bringing the ball to
the fifty yard line. From here Barber
tore off forty yards bringing the bail
to Dummer's ten. From here Bonner
plunged over on the fourth down for
their first score. Goldwaithe's drop
for the extra point was successful. San-
born kicked off to Wally Temple who
sprinted sixty yards through a broken
field in one of the prettiest runs of the
year. This put the ball on the twenty
yard line and Sawyer broke through
or a first down inside the ten yard
line. Webb took the ball over on
the third down. Hart's try for point
was successful. Sanborn received the
kickoff and from the thirty-five yard
line made two successive first downs
before the period ended. To this they
added another giving them a first down
on the twelve yard line. Here Lovett
was replaced by Lane. In six downs
they put it over to take the lead for a
second time. Goldwaithe was again
successful in his drop-kick for the ex-
tra point. Sanborn kicked off to Bert
Temple who ran it back twenty yards
to the forty yard stripe. The ball
never got inside the thirty yard lines
during the rest of the half each side
being forced to punt whenever they
got hold of the ball. Many forwards
were attempted but none completed.
The half ended with Dummer trailing
14 to 10.
Dummer, receiving in the second
half, ran back the kickoff twenty yards
and opened up with a forward pass,
Hart to Bottger, that gained twenty
more. Wally Temple tore off fifteen
around the end. From here, however,
Dummer was unable to gain and gave
up the ball. Sanborn was forced to
punt after one first down, and it was a
fizzle carrying only to the fifty yard
line. On the third down Sawyer ripped
off fifteen, putting the ball on the
twenty-eight yard line, and Wally Tem-
ple, on a beautiful end run, scored on
the next play. Dummer again kicked
to Sanborn, and on the third down Cal-
derwood intercepted a forward pass on
the thirty-five yard line. Wally Tem-
ple reeled off runs of eight and twelve
yards, but the red and white was final-
ly held on the fifteen yard line, and
Hart scored his second three-pointer
of the game.
Sanborn brought back the next
kickoff to their thirty-five yard line
and in three rushes took the ball to
Dummer's forty. At this point the
period intervened, and Lane again re-
placed Lovett. In the last period Dum-
mer kept the ball in Sanborn territory
all the time but was unable to score.
A great many forwards were tried and
a fair majority completed. At the
end of the period Dummer started a
march from her own forty that seemed
destined to end in a score. Passes
from Hart to Bottger, Temple, and
Poor each netted fifteen yards and
Wally made one ten yard dash. Dum-
mer had a first down on the ten
yard line when the game closed. The
whole team had performed brilliantly
with Bottger, Calderwood and Bevt
Temple starring in the line; and the
whole backfield doing wonders. Wally
Temple played his usual game on the
offense and has turned out to be one
of the best backs Dummer ever pro-
duced. He is very slight in build but
goes about his business with grim de-
termination and always succeeds in his
assignment. He is very fast, shifty as
they come, and spins away from the
best of tacklers. Dummer is fortunate
to have his services both this year and

DUMMLK HANDS LAWRENCE
ACADEMY FIRST DEFEAT
On November 6 the Dummer foot-
ball team put forth more proof that it
is rapidly rounding into a first class
team by defeating the unbeaten Law-
rence Academy team 7 to on the
home field. Numbered among the
teams that Lawrence has defeated this
season are two teams which defeated
Dummer in early season games. Wally
Temple was back in the lineup after a
two weeks layoff due to injuries, and
he greatly enhanced the red and white's
offensive power. His long runs and
sensational catches made him the out-
standing player of the day.
Dummer kicked off to McKormick
on the ten yard line, and he ran it
back twenty yards. Two line bucks
netted them seven yards, and an off-
side penalty game them a first down.
Two line bucks failed and after an in-
completed pass Alenti punted to Hart
on his own twenty. On the first play
Wally Temple broke off right tackle
for thirty-five yards. The next play
lost five yards, and then a forward.
Hart to Temple gained ten. Hart's at-
tempt to punt offside near the goal
line failed, and Lawrence took the ball
on their own twenty. A long forward
gained them twenty-five yards. After
one incompleted pass Alenti broke
loose for twenty yards. Lawrence had
three successive five yard penalties in-
flicted on them due to the ends per-
sistent failure to come up to the line of
scrimmage. On the next play Temple
intercepted a forward pass on his own
forty-five yard line. Temple and
Sawyer made seven and Webb shot
around the end for twenty-five. A
fifteen yard penalty for illegal use of
hands btrought Dummer back to the
thirty yard line. Gains by Temple and
Sawyer made a first down. Hart made
seventeen yards taking the ball to a
first down on the three yard line. The
first play failed to gain, and on the

With the coming of winter, the
Dramatic Club begins its activities.
Two plays will probably be given in
the first part of next month. These
plays wll not, by any means, be the
best work of the Dramatic Club. Those
who witnessed its performances last
year have seen what this organization
is capable of doing. The first plays
to be given are simply for the purpose
of arousing interest in the school.
Those of the student body who took
part last year have been called upon
to take part this time and the produc_
tion should run off smoothly. The
Dramatic Club is fortunate in having a
faculty advisor and coach who takes
a sincere interest in putting these plays
over. But without the co-operation
and backing up of the entire student
body, he will be helpless. You must
support him; do willingly the job he
may give you. If you do not get a
chance to act, you can attend the plays
and give the Club the backing up it
needs. The Club can do much in it-
self, but it costs money to put on plays,
and the audience is the thing that
finances the production. With in-
creasing finances the Club will func-
tion so much the better, and better
plays can be produced. With every-
one out and in back of the first set of
plays, a most successful season should
be a certainty.
The football squad rode to Milton
for the football game in real style.
Jim Sleeper hired a thirty passenger
Pierce Arrow bus, which he is con-
templating buying, for the trip. The
idea of the purchase made a great hit
with the team, and they hope to sea
the bus in his possession before long.
On November 3, Mr. Bottger, father
of the left-end and old Princeton and
professional star, came down to help
Coach Smith drive the team for the
Lawrence Academy game. He brought
several new plays and ideas with him,
and the squad went through a long
and beneficial practise under his direc-
tion. All are anxous to tender him

attended the opening performance of
"The Whole Towns Talking" on the
evening of November 8 at the City

by Mr. Lehman. Mr. Reagan had one
of the leading parts.
Dick Wagner's broken leg is mend-

en so, however, they have done re-

eventually as every game their op-

Due principally to the introduction
of dramatics, there is considerable;
talk of dropping track from the winter
sport curiculum. Three sports and

lessen the efficiency of each loam. If

ranged this sport will doubtless be
dropped and if not it will only be car-

next Dummer received an offside pen-
alty. The next made six yards and the
third failed. At this point Page went
in for Hart. The last attempt was
smeared and Lawrence took possession
of the ball on their five yard line.
Losing two yards in three attempts
they punted to Temple on the fifty
yard line and he ran it back twenty
yards. Here Dummer failed to make
the necessary distance and relinquished
the ball on downs. The ball stayed in
the midfield for the remainder of the
half with one exchange of punts. So far
Dummer had shown a strong edge but
failed to put the ball over with op-
portunity knocking very clearly.
Dummer came back after the half
determined to run up a score. Law-
rence kicked off and recovered giving
them a first down on Dummer's forty-
five yard line. Here they were held
and forced to give up the ball on
downs. Hart who returned to the game
after the half tossed a forward to
Sawyer that gained twenty yards. An-
other to Temple was good for fifteen.
Here a fumble recovered by Lawrence
spoiled what seemed to be a scoring
march. Lawrence now started toward
the Dummer goal and were only
stopped on the ten yard line. Two
plays brought the ball out to the
twenty yard line. Here Alenti, the
Lawrence quarter back, was disquali-
fied for slugging; and Dummer was
awarded half the distance to the goal
line. Putting the ball in play on the
thirty-eight yard line, Webb and
Sawyer took the ball to the "wenty
yard line and Wally Temple scored on
an end run. Hart kicked the extra
point. In the last quarter the visitors
attempted a field goal from the thirty
yard line which was not even close,
and that ended their threats. Bert
Temple caught the kick and ran it out
to the thiry-five yard line. Sawyer
gained ten yards and Wally Temple
reeled off thirty-five yards before he
was brought down on the twenty five
yard line. Sawyer made three and
Temple made nine more. Here, how-
ever, Dummer was held and on the
iast attempt a pass went over the goal
line. Lawrence was forced to punt
from the twenty and Hart made a
pretty twenty-five yard run back to
the thirty-five yard line. This ended the
It was one of the most interesting
games held on the Morse Field for
some time, and of course the victory
was doubly sweet coming as it did on
top of sjch a string of defeats. For a
game featured by so many long runs,
it was peculiar that the score was so
low. Both teams had fine defenses
and with a little drive and punch de-
veloped on the Dummer offense they
should give Sanborn a sound beating
in the final game.

One of the best exhibitions of foot-
ball was given on the Morse Feld when
the Dummer Juniors triumphed over
the Junior team of DeWitt Clinton
School 3 to 0. The Juniors were up
against a team that outweighed them
nearly twenty-five pounds to a man
but played clean hard football and
managed to get in position for a drop
kick just before the half ended. The
ball was never inside the thirty-yard
lines save once when the home team
scored. Robinson on the offense and
Emery for his defensive playing and
his kicking were the stars of the game.
The Juniors have one of the best
teams in years and much credit is due
to Coach Norton Pickering. They
have a fine set of plays of all varieties,
play hard and well, and have the gen-
eral polish to them that marks a good
set of players under an able coach.
Emery got off several long punts
which aided in the punting duel that
took place. Near the end of the half
Dummer made two first downs and
had the ball well into DeWitt territory.
Realizing that there was scarcely a
minute to play Emery was called back
and standing on his own thirty put
over a dropkick in the face of a
strong wind. During the next half
neither team was even in field goal
range, and the game ended with the
little Juniors on top. This was certain-
ly a case of skill winning over brawn,
and they deserve all kinds of credit.
